* A literal example on ''TheWestWing'' (in an episode aptly titled "''The Stackhouse Filibuster''"), where a senator filibusters in order to delay voting on a crucial health care bill so that he can add on a provision for autism care and research.

* In the Literature/StarTrekNovelVerse, Federation Councillor Bera chim Gleer of Tellar is infamous for these. According to one novel, ''Literature/StarTrekArticlesOfTheFederation'', he's never had a speech on the council floor go shorter than forty-five minutes...and that was when he had a cold. Usually it's twice that, minimum.

* In an episode of ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'', a character played by guest star Patton Oswalt engages in a political fillibuster that consists of him offering his thoughts for the plot of future ''Franchise/StarWars'' films- which basically consists of a MassiveMultiplayerCrossover with the MarvelCinematicUniverse. While the speech was significantly shortened for the actual episode, a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BBhNkywMJY full length version]] (that goes on for almost 9 minutes) was released on the internet prior to the episode, and went on to become somewhat memetic.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', a ''fervent'' priest of Talos will stand before the statue of his god outside Dragonsreach and Jorvaskrr and shout a constant, unending sermon extolling the virtues of Talos and maligning the [[ScrewYouElves Thalmor]] who tried to ban his worship. Since you're likely going to be constantly running back and forth between Dragonsreach, Jorvaskrr, and your house in the city, you'll be hearing him a ''lot''. He's also not particularly important, so most players just kill him.

* There are long, boring and banal speeches explaining the Creator/MarqusDeSade's insipid nihilism and justifications of selfishness and cruelty in almost all his works, the most famous being "Justine", "Juliette" and "Dialogue between a priest and a dying man".

* The eponymous detective on ''{{Duckman}}'' was known to do this on occasion, the most memorable probably being his lengthy rant about the insanity of modern life in the episode "A Room with a Belleview".

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}'' has at least two points where [[AuthorFilibuster Chris-Chan]] appears and ''takes up an entire page'' to rant about whatever issue is at hand. The fact that both of them consist of unending walls of poorly-formatted Comic Sans wrapped around a hilariously misproportioned Chris make them even harder to read.
